to jim lehrer? he might as well not even showed up last night. he lost control of the debate and mitt romney ran all over him like a truck crushing a bug. we don't need a moderator for the next debate. we didn't have one last night. we'll talk about it, who won who lost, is it going to change anything. first, let's take a little time out to get the latest, today's current news update as always from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa, good morning. >> hey bill, welcome back. it is a good day to be back. good morning everyone. with the first debate under their belts the candidates are back on the campaign trail today. president obama starts out where he left off in denver then he heads to madison wisconsin. joe biden is in iowa and mitt romney is in virginia. but who wants to talk about all of that when what you really want to talk about is the debates. a lot of claims thrown around last night. we're going to do some fact checking for you this morning. but first let's start out with a bit of a recap.
. it sounded like an unpleasant board meeting at which jim lehrer was being set aside and fired summarily in front of the rest of the board. it sounded extremely harsh to my ear, and i did acknowledge that maybe because i am listening from a female point of view, i thought when he was interrupting, goading, really bullying jim lehrer, you know, as bad a moderator as jim lehrer is being said to be today, i thought mitt romney's attitude toward him was actually a negative thing for him and didn't help him in the big problem he has, which is likability. >> yeah. it felt to me like mitt romney showed up thinking that his goal was to be the alpha male. >> right. >> and that he needed to assert his dominance over everyone there, and certainly jim lehrer bore the brunt, the president as well. i got the sense that for him it was a dominance thing. it was very aggressive, and i agree with joy, i think a lot of women, particularly women who were already inclined to vote for the president, which as we know many women are, are going to be further turned off by that tone. >> do you think that he was l
with senator kerry. so very often presidents do have a rough time in the first debate. jim lehrer was no help at all. i think you are going to see a much more energized barack obama, and all of these smug conservatives saying that paul ryan is going to mop the floor with joe biden. forget about it. >> stephanie: look at his speech. ryan's speech at the rnc, john that was just about as thoroughly fact checked -- >> oh my gosh. that speech just got home to his wife last night. >> stephanie: we just said that's where the jump in jobs has happened in fact checkers. >> yes. >> stephanie: john fugelsang remains in the side car. we continue with the remaining moments of fridays with fugelsang on the "stephanie miller show." >> announcer: highbrow low brow unibrow. it's the "stephanie miller show." ♪ (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. >>current will let me say anything. (vo) john fugelsang sees what happens. >> you know, blaming this economy on barack obama is kinda l
job? >> romney. maybe jim lehrer. format i love. much more demanding on jim but better for us. >> ifill: we're looking forward to what jim has to say tonight. it's a big night and we'll go to the convention hall and hoar from our own jim lehrer. >> lehrer: good evening, from the ma nag mess arena in colora. i welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates between president barack obama, the democratic nominee, and former massachusetts governor, mitt romney, the republican. nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice presidential, are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15-minute segments with two-minute answers for the first question, then open discussion for the remainder of each segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions have a the internet and other means, but i made the final selections, and for the record, they were not submitted for approval to the commi
of tonight is, and this is actually a question how jim lehrer navigates this, where is the emphasis of the domestic policy discussion on the spectrum of deficit and jobs? if it is on jobs, that is where you want to keep the conversation as the president. because even though the unemployment number is high, there are many things he can point to as the president that are concrete plans for job creation. if it's deficit, the president the in a weaker position, because people just associate him with the deficits, with spending. that's been a very effective line for mitt romney. and it's actually going to be interesting to see whether jim lehrer subscribes to a beltway connection with deficits, and we see from those numbers, the president is doing poorly on deficits and he's winning the race right now. >> people vote more on jobs than they vote on deficits, despite the amount the beltway obsesses on it. ed, last word? >> the other thing about the deficit, this could rope the president into a very vulnerable position and get him into a conversation about what hays going to do if he's re-e
's basically a part-timer at pbs. it was a curious choice of all the journalists that jim lehrer is who they called on for this. the one criticism that i see that resonates the most with me. we have three presidential debates and this was the domestic policy debaltdebate. this was a narrow set of policy questions last night. there were no questions about immigration last night or gay marriage last night. >> women's issues. >> these are major issues in the campaign and there's a movement to diversify the moderator pool a little bit. >> jim lehrer is a historic choice for them, but they treated him as a replacement ref. he should be out of the pool. >> i didn't think he was great. you can't blame the moderator. they had the same. >> he was terrible at his job. >> ultimately this wasn't about jim lehrer but president obama and mitt romney. they both had the opportunity to take advantage of the situation, and one did and one didn't. >> all right. so what do we make of all the 2012 election predictions out there? the original nate, nate silver is in the guest spot next, or is it becoming the
, instead of jim lehrer. >> whatever it takes to keep american's attention. >>> foreign news this morning, u.n. security council is condemning syria after artillery strike on a turkish border town that killed five civilians. syria apologized. fears of cross border war triggered protests. police used tear gas and water cannons to barack reak up prote thousands. >>> struggling to put out a wildfire. the fire fueled by bone dry conditions quickly scorched 150 acres. some people in shelton, 40 miles from seattle, were forced from their homes. others were put on notice to be ready to get out. >>> american airlines is canceling dozens of flights just before the holiday weekend. as it scrambles to fix loose passenger seats. airline executives are not blaming the problem on its own work force. they claim it is a combination of wear, poor design and spilled soda, can you believe that, causing seat clamps to fail. the repairs should be repaired by monday. >> be careful with your sodas. >>> major financial headline this morning, record low rates for mortgage loans. the rates fell for a second week in a
waged a campaign to get jim lehrer of pbs who will be posted the first presidential election to ask the question about gun violence. another. you don't hear much debate between the republican candidate mitt romney and president obama -- we will open up the debate and expand the debate as we so often do on "democracy now, "to a third party candidates. we will be in denver, to and we will have third-party candidates responding to the same questions being put to mitt romney and president obama. we will broadcast democracy now.org and on radio as well. you raised the issue of the critical vote as we traveled through pennsylvania. a whole issue of voter suppression and having been in charlotte, a great civil-rights city, where the students from the historical black college in 1960 set up a lunch counter in to grant them and yet, what do we see today? state after state, efforts to suppress voting rights instead of expanding them. not enough people vote in this country. in pennsylvania, there is legislation now on the books that could disenfranchise between 750,000-1 million people. presid
the fact that jim lehrer asked questions of substance and we each responded to them. i got the chance to ask the president questions people across the country wanted to ask him. such as, why did he push obamacare when we had 23 million people out of work? >> and last night, mitt romney was asked how he would have responded had the president brought up his hidden camera remarks about the 47%. >> well, clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. and that's been demonstrated throughout my life and this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it will be about helping the 100%. >> during wednesday night's debate, mitt romney forcefully defended his tax plan, rejecting the president's claim that his proposal would ultimately raise the tax burden on the middle class. romney has called for cutting income tax rates acr
choice but to try to do it. we'll see where the help of jim lehrer, the moderator, exactly how he uses this moment. >> talk to you in a moment. whenever there's a big night involving politics, you can bet larry kudlow is involved. he's here on set with us. you were disappointed with mitt romney on the convention at large. is this a time to reform that. >> particularly on the economy and jobs. at the whole republican convention and mitt romney's speech set that campaign back several weeks in my opinion. they got no bump and no bounce. in fact, they probably got a negative bounce. so tonight it is incumbent on him to do two things. one is make the big picture. he's the free enterpriser and president obama is the big government planner. and those are big differences in philosophy in government. two, romney has a tax cut plan. he has a spending cut plan. he has an energy plan. he's got to make it clear. he's got to explain to people the connection between his plans and the economic recovery that we have not yet had. that's a tall order for romney. and he's going to have to fight hard for i
. the debates go on and on and on. tmz caught up with jim lehrer moderator of the debate. there was this whole controversy over the debaters, the moderators are not supposed to sort of step into the debates and be kind of quiet. maybe was jim lehrer a little too quiet? tmz caught up. this is what he had to say. >> do you feel you were disrespected by president obama and governor romney? >> i didn't expect much. >> they worried that he was treated like a doormat was part of the possibility. >> yeah. they both kind of ran right over him. give me more time. i'm going to continue. jim didn't seem to have a lot of control in the debate. >> it's hard, though, rob. >> it's intimidating. how do you tell the president, how do you control that? has to be a better way. other people have done a better way. i don't think other moderators, whether it's our own martha raddatz or candy crowley, i think you would have seen a different tone. >> should have considered simon cowell. for this role. exactly. >> exactly. >> who was on -- >> jim, 12th, perhaps final. >>> real quick news here. j-lo in paris for fashio
anything i want. jim lehrer is not getting in my way. why didn't he say here is why i stuck out my neck for the american auto industry. >> absolutely. >> it's not just about jobs. i feel american people like to build cars. we love cars. it's in our nature to build them and build the best. it's important that guys and women have jobs making cars. it's important to who we are as americans. maybe general motors was good -- damn it, it's good to have general motors, something passionate that would have gone right to ohio, to pennsylvania, wisconsin. they would have said, damn it, this guy gets how much thrill i get getting on that line every day and turning out these great cars that i want to buy. why didn't -- how about women? a girl ought to know from the time she's 16 her hours are as valuable as the male's hour of work. these are passionate things he believes in. he stood there like he was an observer of romney's performance. i could go on -- i got to let you talk. i could go on. go ahead. >> you could go on. we might want you to stand in for barack obama. >> i could do this show alone
moment. it's a little awkward between him and jim lehrer, but the sper action on obama dp the interaction on obamacare was somewhat amusing to hear them talk about that phrase. >> i heard some people say, well, that's what he plans to do and he was willing to say it right there and to stand up to what he stands for. want to go and look at an exchange between the president and jim lehrer very quickly. let's take a look at this. >> now, the last point i'd make before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had had five seconds before you interrupted me. [ laughter ] >> there's that smile. what did you think of that? >> it's supposed to be funny, and i think you can look at it and laugh. i do think this is one of his poorer moments in terms of his personality, his personnability. he had a tendency to be a little bit halting and a little bit -- he had a kind of smirk on his face a lot of the debate and i think that does not come across well in the debate forum and that was an example of that right there. >> very good. jonathan strong, we thank you for coming in this morning. >> thank you.
opponent. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> pbs' jim lehrer will moderate tonight's debate from denver at 9:00 p.m. you can watch it here on abc news. a new cnn poll has this race as a dead heat when factoring in the three-point margin of error. >>> no doubt you have seen plenty of ads about expanded gambling here in our state. well, the washington redskins are now showing support for question 7. the team issued a statement in favor of building a casino in pg county and adding table games to the state's existing casinos. the representative says a yes vote for question 7 is a tremendous opportunity to create jobs and increase funding for public schools in maryland. >>> you have a chance to say thank you to those who have sacrificed so much just to protect us. baltimore's international association of firefighters, they are hosting a crab feast and it's all to honor colleagues who have lost their lives in the line of duty. it's happening tonight, if you're curious and you want to go, and it's happening at the baltimore museum of industry on key highway. the ceremony
moderator, jim lehrer, of pbs. >> both candidates saying for months it will be crucial. >>> also, in this half hour, in this first half, a new showdown is heating up. a tree that almost killed, well, mcsteamy as you know him from "grey's anatomy." his wife was awe alone in the backyard. a tree fell on her from the next door neighbor's yard. a big legal battle brewing. >> and the lead singh from the smashing pumpkins. >>> first, we're going to get to the latest trouble for american airlines. a story we first brought you on "good morning america." another flight was forced to make an emergency landing last night. and abc's jim avila has been tracking all of the developments. jim, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. american pilots could be at the bargaining table as early as today, perhaps bringing to an end a string of delays that is crippling the reputation of the bankrupt airline which seems to be suffering one maintenance problem to another. this morning, the embattled american airlines under the microscope again. >> i have a gear unsafe flight. >> reporter: ano
believe i can. i talked about the principles -- megyn: there is jim lehrer who will be moderating tonight. >> it wasn't just vice presidential goarms team that thought oh won. there is a report that george stephanopoulos thought he won. he apparently declared the nine debates, 8 had been won by the democrats. later on these things harden. that'sy think the afterdebate is as important as the debate itself. what gets picked up and what gets focused on. my former colleague suggested the gaffe measure. has a gaffe come out. one of the tests will be, does the opposite side cite something the other candidate said in a debate in the an ad to make fun of it. megyn: romney is not a guy who makes a lot of fun of himself speak of making fun. and he's not a guy who has shown a lot of aptitude in connecting with the average joe at home. it seems like the folks who like him like him despite the fact they don't necessarily feel warm and fuzzy about him the way they would a ronald reagan. does he need to change that tonight, bill? >> i think he needs to tell people what he stands for. i think he spent th
of people talked about the candidates and how they did. but what about the moderator? jim lehrer pretty much faded into the background. should he have taken greater control of this debate? >> it's very hard to moderate a presidential debate. sometimes you do want to be that person who kind of fades away. you want to let the candidates be the main actors, not sometime the person in the media. but on the other hand, there were some questions on whether he could have been more assertive or not. these are tricky things. of course, i think at the end of the day more people are paying attention to what president obama and mitt romney had to say rather than the moderator. >> town hall format, they're already coming into virginia, the romney campaign is coming in tonight, the president next week. >> and you're going to have vice president joe biden before that debate and paul ryan debate in kentucky. that's going to be interesting. there's a little pressure on joe biden to see if he can rough up the republicans the way that president obama seemed to get a little roughed up last night. >> it's going
will watch. i think jim lehrer has stayed too long. i watched him in 2008 and he looked like willie mays. he was missing the curve ball by 18 inches and he really needs to step back. yes, i will watch. i want to hear what these men have to say. that guy from berkeley springs, west virginia, carl, the old geezer, he gets through about every two weeks and complaints. one more thing, brian lamb is much better looking than you. host: i won't argue. let's go to stanley on our independent line. do you plan to watch tomorrow night's debate? caller: no. this only one thing that can save the country and that to replace the irs with a fair tax. the top 20 countries in the world, we have the worst tax system. i am in the care society, living on social security. i could have a yard sale and all tax free. i put all my money back into the country. i spread it around, all the stores i go through and so on and so forth. i am the researcher for 14 friends and relatives with documented information on who in congress want to replace the irs. there are about eight or nine of them. allen west, i'm surprised he d
to know in his quarter century as the country's go to referee for the presidential debate. mr. jim lehrer the former anchor of pbs news hour has been seizing outreach by the suggestion that he was as safe and uninspired choice to moderate the first debate and he's offended by the reports that question whether the 12 presidential debate might bone too many. they say in this election living by a journalist doctrine of disengagement of reporter is never the story that has been harder than ever especially for those moderating debates. they go to because reassure the individual will be the moderators. we see martha raddatz but correspondent for abc news and will moderate the vice presidential debate and is the only moderator chosen who is not an anchor. candy crowley the host of the state of the union program on cnn will host one of the debates, and bob schiffer the cbs correspondent and a host of face the nation. tomorrow night they are hosting -- there are other stories in the people looking at the candidates and to do.

. for now, from the university of denver, jim lehrer. thank you and good night. [cheers and applause] [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> both presidential candidates back on the campaign trail today. the president told in a campaign rally shortly in denver. we will have live coverage at 12:20 eastern on c-span, followed by your phone calls. vice president biden's campaign in iowa today. mitt romney and his running mate paul ryan are campaigning together today. we will have live coverage of their stock in virginia rallying at a country music concert at 6:45 eastern on c-span, and your reaction. now look at some of the reaction in the spin room to last night's date. >> why would the president not more aggressive? >> the president did exactly what he had to do. talking to the american people about where we are going and what we are doing moving forward. he was clear. he gave specifics about jobs and the economy, about medicare, things that matter to the american public's. that's why we had a good debate. >>
were fired off during the debate. the highest point was jim lehrer said let's not when mitt romney wanted to move on to another topic. >> ben knows this because he head all of those tweets. >> exactly. there were people all over the country talking about his tweets. we'll talk about that story later. >> and john travolta and olivia newton john are swinging together for the first time in 35 years. they are putting out a charity holiday music album titled "this christmas". there are also other guest artists appearing on the album including kenny g. >> that is a who's who of musics will never listen to ever. >> john and olivia do the hits. >> you got it. >> holy cow do i not want to hear that. [ laughter ] >> could turn into a vegas show you never know. >> you never know. thanks dan. go to 866-55-press 866-557-7377. you may have heard yesterday there was a story, peter -- yesterday there was a story. >> yes. >> this story about a former governor a former chief of staff to a former president john sununu has some amazing things to say about the president. >> what peo
and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes
weeks on that, chris. i think every debate moderator starting with jim lehrer tomorrow night is going to demand specifics in the way chris wallace tried to do last week on fox. and i also think that the numbers are emblematic of values in this case. people want to know about mitt romney. they're undecided. i disagree with chuck a little bit. i think people are prepared to blame the president enough to dismiss him if, as chuck says, they are secure about romney. it's that last piece that romney hasn't done, and forcing him to discuss the details of his tax plan is not a way necessarily to win those undecided voters at this point because i doubt that many of them like the idea of a big tax cut for millionaires. >> what do you think, chuck, of george wills' column where he says america will advance when it learns how to fire a black president, an african-american president. we haven't advanced that far. what do you make of this comment in his column today? like the orioles fired frank robinson. >> i have talked to a lot of republicans who believe that they do believe that there is a high
't be surprised at all but the nice thing about a debate is that i think the moderator, jim lehrer, is going to take a step back and allow the clash between the candidates. i think if romney gives a nonanswer to that question we just talked about obama will say, no, answer that question and that will generate an exciting back and forth and make for a great debate. sfeefrnlt it all goes down that way. james, thank you so much. have fun in denver. >>> coming up, former pennsylvania governor ed rendell joins me live what does he make of the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows president obama and governor romney tied with a among voters would an interest in the leeks. >>> earlier today, the president tweeted 20 years ago today, i married the love of my life and my best friend. happy anniversary, michelle. first lady, twitter replay, thank you for being an incredible partner, friend and father every day. i love you. "ever ask somebody to lend you a foot?" "who thinks about stuff like that?" "vince mahe grew up on two continents... and noticed that wherever you go, people have their hand
't because moderator jim lehrer worked for pbs since 1973. romney messed with the most popular bird in america, and twitter responded. big bird peaked at 17,000 tweets per minute and the the #savesesamestreet became the top trending topic. >> i don't understand. you know, everything was just fine. why does it have to be this way? give me one good reason. >> well, that's the problem, pbs doesn't receive any direct money from the government. the government funds the corporation for public broadcasting, a profit -- a private non-profit corporation that distributes the subsidy to local pbs stations. in 2012, cpb was given $444.1 million. let's see. what is that? that's .012% of the federal budget. last year, pbs received just 5% of cpb's total appropriation? so in terms of having an impact on the nation's debt, folks, we're talking about a drop in the bucket, but to many americans mitt romney is talking about cutting an institution. pbs calls itself america's biggest classroom for a reason. it offers educational programming to kids across america who might otherwise not have access. pre
